C: Less expensive experienced FA catcher platooning with Flowers. If A.J. takes a pay cut, it could be him
2B: Time to cut bait on Beckham, deal him for something decent. Try to acquire a leadoff hitter here and move De Aza to 2nd spot where he profiles better and where a pure hitter is needed
3B: give Morel another shot, bat 9th, add a good hitter for the bench who can backup at 3B
LF: trade Viciedo (IMO Boras is going to want $6-7M in arb) for prospects, add young good hitter with good eye at the plate who can improve into a quality corner outfielder
CF: De Aza
DH: a Kenny-special inexpensive retread after Dunn is dealt for an inning eater starter with a similarly bad contract. Tori Hunter??
IF: experienced platoon 3B who can step in for Morel
IF: someone who can backup SS and at least put up a decent AB
OF: decent bench power hitter
OF: decent bench average hitter
SP: inning eater in Dunn trade
SP: Humber/minor leaguer pushing for a spot in spring
Decline Thornton's and Floyd's options
